Synopses & Reviews
In this collection, Audre Lorde gives us poems that explore 'differences as creative tensions, and the melding of past strength/pain with future hope/fear; the present being the vital catalyst, the motivating force — activism.'
“In these poems Lorde reveals a new maturity through language denser and richer than she has used previously. The anger she expresses comes from an awareness of suffering — both current...and past... — but is balanced by a tenderness born of love.” Library Journal
